|This is a snow version of Uncle Ico!|
It snowed again today--another weird occurrence for this area. Dad, Rachel and Jonny went outside to play in it while Mom and I got to cooking ( and boy did we cook!). They built this big snowman which they then carried up in pieces and assembled on our balcony. It looked just like Uncle Ico! By the afternoon it had warmed up enough so that the snow started melting, but there was enough on the ground to create the holiday "mood."
Naturally we stuffed our faces, like the gluttonous Americans we are, then we went on a scenic drive to show everyone how beautiful it is around here. When we got back, because we hadn't consumed enough calories, we busted out the apple crisp pie and pumpkin pie with ice cream and whipped cream. Hmm Hmm! What fatties! I went ahead and put up our little Christmas tree too! Happy Thanksgiving!

|Me and Laverne! First snowman of the winter.|
So when it does snow, it's a big deal. A BIG DEAL. In fact, it's a fiasco. Jason received orders at work today to go home early because it was snowing, even though there was maybe a millimeter on the ground. Jason's boss a few weeks back told him to stock up on food storage ( and he's not even LDS!) because if it snowed, the roads would be shut down! Then there is the matter of keeping an eye out for crazy Seattle drivers who are swerving, going way too slow or simply just parking their cars on the side of the road because the 1/2 inch of snow is more than they can handle.

In preparation I gotta clean our little house ( which doesn't take long) and do a big grocery shopping to get enough food for Thanksgiving and to feed all the hungry mouths! It's all worth it because I am SO excited to have my family up here to see our new place in Washington. :)

|This is what we would like our finished product to look like! So far it hasn't...|

After some encouragement and nudging from me, Jason signed up for his own domain and created a website where he will blog about techie stuff. I wanted him to do this because he's really smart and excels at absorbing knowledge--knowledge that he gets from everyday work as well as from things he discovers and learns about on his own time. Unfortunately, the poor kid is stuck with me as his less-than-captive audience. Computer techie stuff is not my forte, nor my great interest in life, so a lot of stuff that he tries to explain to me gets blocked by a "zone-out" wall that I put up, if the information doesn't go right over my head to begin with. My eyes glaze over and I start thinking about other things. So...by him having his own blog/website, he can now pass on his knowledge to anyone who might be searching for it online.
